(I find Malabrigo Worsted to be more of a heavy worsted/Aran weight yarn)

What could be better than a pretty little cardigan that will grow with the little girl who wears it?!

This cardigan is just the ticket! Its versatile A-line shape and top-down design will make it easily fit a child for longer than you’d think.

It features a nice garter stitch collar, and garter stitch front knit-in bands. Twisted stitch heart motifs run down the fronts, the largest embellishing the knit-in pockets that are great for little girls’ treasures.

A simple, but very pretty lace panel adds interest to the back.

And since this is knit from the top-down, the length and sleeves can easily be adjusted.

AND, it’s knit in Malabrigo Merino Worsted, a wonderfully soft yarn that is a joy to work with and comes in fabulous hand-dyed colors.
